INSIDE: Use old comic books to make DIY superhero wall art. Easy superhero gallery wall decor.
So my mother-in-law has been cleaning out closets. Super. Less for us to do when they downsize and move. However her clean-out means boxes and bags of my husband’s childhood things are making their way to my house.

Lay out your comic book page onto the sheet of plywood. Determine your measurements. (Ours measure 8″x11.25″.) Cut the plywood with a Skil saw.
If desired, paint the plywood.
Once dry, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the back of the comic book page. Place the comic book onto the plywood. Smooth out.
Paint on a layer of Mod Podge over the comic page.
We used a carpet nail to secure the comic books onto the wall.
